If Peyton Manning joins the Broncos, he won’t get to play with three of his new teammates for a while.

Per multiple reports, three Broncos have been suspended by the league.  Linebacker D.J. Williams and defensive end Ryan McBean have been suspended six games, and tight end Virgil Green has been suspended four games.

Vic Lombardi of CBS4 reports that each of the suspensions arise under the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Lombardi also reports that Williams and McBean claim that someone tampered with their samples, and that they will file a federal lawsuit on Monday.

UPDATE 6:51 p.m. ET:  A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the suspensions of Williams and McBean were imposed under the steroids policy.
